    • Description:
      This report deals with the major activities of the Communicable Disease Center during the fiscal year 1949. Information presented was abstracted from reports prepared by the headquarters units, Regional CDC representatives, and CDC activities directors in States where cooperative operational programs are conducted. In the interest of clarity of presentation, and as an aid to those unfamiliar with the Center's operations, the report is divided into three parts: (l) organization and objectives; (2) headquarters organization activities; and (3) field organization activities. Though this edition covers the same general field as previous CDC Activities Reports, this year the material has been organized and presented as an integrated account of the undertakings and accomplishments of the Center as a whole rather than on the basis of activities of the respective component units. It is believed that this topical approach offers a more useful summation of the Center's contributions to the over-all program of communicable disease control. In the preparation of this report there has been conscious effort to omit details and record only composite end results that contribute toward improved health for all of the people through more effective control of communicable diseases.
